Tollway Kalka, Pinjore, Parwanoo bypass opens for traffic

Shimla: A newly constructed bypass connecting Haryana and Himachal Pradesh was opened for motorists Friday that will help avoid some major bottlenecks, an official said.
The bypass would avoid Pinjore, Kalka and Parwanoo towns that were the main bottleneck on National Highway 22, a spokesperson for the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) said.

He said the bypass would save on travelling time and distance.

Traffic snarls between Pinjore and Parwanoo were common.

A toll plaza has also been set up by the NHAI at Chandimandir, near Panchkula in Haryana, for using the bypass.

A car, jeep and van driver will have to pay Rs.23 per entry when crossing the plaza, whereas drivers of light transport vehicles comprising canters and mini trucks have to pay Rs.39 per entry. For trucks and buses, the entry fee is Rs.79.

Initially, the Parwanoo-Pinjore bypass was to be completed by August 2010.

    The facility is good. However the problem is the toll amount. Why the hell they have to keep the toll at Rs 23 instead of Rs 20 or 25 for car. Similarly Rs 39 for tempos and Rs 79 for trucks and buses. Why not Rs 40 and Rs 80 respectively to make the life of commuters easy… They want to give more discomfort that facility….
